Mens Clothing

One of our favorite hiking, every day, and backpacking clothing lines is KUIU.  Many of our writers swear by them.  The KUIU Switchback Pants are actually my favorite pants of 2022.

One of the most impressive companies we have tested gear for has been Outdoor Vitals.  They offer really great gear and a very fair price.  The Outdoor Vitals NovaPro Down Jacket ($250) has more fill, costs less, and even has pit zips!

My favotire t-shirt of all time, and the one I recomend the most is the TREW Lightweight Nuyarn Pocket T
